(Newser) – Can't find a babysitter? Bringing your kid to work may seem the simplest solution—but first, consider these suggestions from Forbes.

  1. Check out employer-provided child care. Many places don't have on-site care, but they may have backup services.
  2. Work from home. Your boss and co-workers will thank you.

  1. Bring in your child during off-hours only—the beginning or end of the day.
  2. Clear it with the boss first. Big surprises can be unpleasant even when they come in little packages.
  3. If the kid has to come to work with you, keep him or her quiet and occupied.
